The Dub Pistols
One of the hardest working bands in showbusiness, Barry Ashworth and his motley crew have added a much-needed swagger to the U.K. dance scene in recent years, with releases built for big fields and summer sound systems. Proudly working class as a band, the Dub Pistols have been tearing up venues and festivals throughout their career. Inspired by the Second Summer of Love, the band were founded in 1996 and have been at the forefront of beats culture ever since. Known for their rhythmical blend of bass, turntables and horns, their genre-mashing abilities has seen them work with some of their biggest heroes including The Specials, Horace Andy, and Madness.
